Macho Nachos

1/2 pound bulk Italian turkey sausage or bulk hot Italian sausage
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green or red sweet pepper
1 8-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup thick-and-chunky salsa
6 cups tortilla chips
2 cups shredded co-jack cheese (8 ounces)
Guacamole dip (optional)
Sliced ripe olives (optional)

Combine sausage, onion, and sweet pepper in a skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 7 minutes or until sausage is browned and vegetables are tender. Drain well. Stir in beans and salsa; cook until heated through.

Arrange half the chips on a 12-inch round microwave-safe platter. Spoon half the sausage mixture evenly over chips. Top with half the cheese. Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts, giving the dish a half-turn once. Top with guacamole dip and sliced ripe olives, if desired. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve warm.

Makes 16 servings.
